South Prairie mayor in running for open House seat

The mayor of South Prairie has filed paperwork to become a candidate for the open 31st District House seat.

Republican Rep. Dan Roach is leaving the seat to run for Pierce County Council. At least two Republicans are seeking to replace him, County Councilman Shawn Bunney – who would switch jobs with Roach if both win – and Cathy Dahlquist, an Enumclaw School Board member.

A Democrat has finally joined the field, according to state Public Disclosure Commission filings. South Prairie Mayor Peggy Levesque has led the town, one of Pierce County’s smallest, since 2006.

Before becoming mayor, Levesque was a town councilwoman, and also worked part-time as a union organizer.

    I think Peggy Levesque has done a great job for the South Prairie community and would be a refreshing addition to the State House.
